Do NOT Respond to this Email

Request For Urgent Political Intervention

Dear American Citizen,

First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and "top secret." Many authorities in the current regime of my home country would seek to persecute me if they were to discover this. I am sure and have confidence of your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of this great magnitude involving a pending transaction requiring maximum confidence.

I am former official of the Iran government who lose his place after revolution. But before this time we have develop many valuable assets which this new government wants to take for its own. We have many billions in oil, strategic position in Persian Gulf, and many millions of dollars in fine carpets for export – and a freedom-loving people who cannot now have any say in this government which oppress us, and try to use it all for making nuclear weapons to threaten U.S. and allies. We hide some of these assets away so the revolutionists cannot have them, but now we need help from trusted foreigners to liberate these assets and our country. Of course as this is business transaction, you and your country would receive 5% plus expenses of all we recover after government authorities are overthrown, and our people liberated, welcoming you with rose-petals in the streets of Teheran. You would also have permanent military bases, and oil pipelines to neighboring countries of your choice.

These assets are ready to be disbursed, and our nation ready to remake in the image of West democracies, but cannot now happen without your help – for which said help we offer you this reward.

I have been delegated as a matter of trust by my associates and fellow dissidents to seek an overseas partner with financial means and military infrastructure to help us release these assets and this country.

This transaction is 100% safe, and resistance by current government would collapse in a cakewalk at first appearance of planes, bombings, tanks and National Guardsmen of our foreign partner. The assets would be yours to share with us, while our countrymen pull down statues of oppressors and dance in the streets. No danger to you or your soldiers would appear, we can guarantee.

To free up these assets, all we require from yourself is the use of foreign accounts, funds, and seven armored divisions, plus relevant planes for air supports. Please to provide the above within 30 days, to prevent the revolutionary government from seizing these assets and using them against us, and you and your allies.

YOURS FAITHFULLY,

Manucher Ghorbanifar
